Customer Reviews


The beginning is beautifully paced, slow and meditative, allowing the listener to gently sink into the sombre mood of the piece. This comes as a complete contrast to the original recording conducted by the composer in 1963 that opens with a much more aggressive tone. Sabina Cvilak’s voice rings out with beautiful clarity, but it was the tenor Ian Bostridge who really captured my attention with his outstanding performance, particularly in the Dies Irae. The LSO are on fire as led masterfully for the first time on disc by Noseda. More of this please!


This is a magical recording, I wish I had been there to hear it live. Every movement stands out and is more powerful than the next. If Britten were alive today, I think he'd be proud. The LSO are on top form and the three main soloists really shine. I particularly wanted to hear how they tackled 'Move him into the Sun' - wow what a sparkling sound! Ian Bostridge is spectucular. This is a truly wonderful recording.

Britten war requiem Noseda.

a superbly thought out reading which goes to the heart of this moving work. A great version to have alongside Britten's own 1963 recording.
